They’re reportedly not too keen on the lack of chemistry between Curry and Matt Lauer.
I, for one, have always found Curry to be a bit too earnest in some of her interviews (and like, borderline aggro when she talks to the likes of Brangelina about their charitable work), but, y’ know, also quite jovial. I do find her to be more of a supporting player, in a way, and wish she’d whoop it up a bit more frequently, but to sack her seems a bit...rushed. They really should let her mature her style and let viewers learn to appreciate it.

Over Ann Out?
Where there’s smoke...there should be a nice a burger on a grill, but when it comes to the Today show, it often means something’s up with one of the members of “America’s First Family.”
For a while now we have been hearing that the powers that be over at NBC have been wanting to replace Ann Curry as co-host of the morning show, just a bit more than a year after she took over after Meredith Vieira left the show.
Then again, television is not a patient beast. Not anymore, and not these days, anyway.
Having said all of that, though, the show’s news anchor Natalie Morales could not have downplayed talk of comings and goings – Awkward Alert! Today third-hour-co-host Savannah Guthrie is widely speculated to be the frontrunner for Curry’s seat – any cooler (than a cucumber!) than she did when I asked her, back in April, about the rumor.
I guess we will see how this one shakes soon, huh. Bright and early.
